lpr - print files

SYNOPSIS

lpr [ -E ] [ -H server[:port] ] [ -U username ] [ -P destina- tion[/instance] ] [ -# num-copies [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -m ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -p] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -C/J/T title ] [ file(s) ]

DESCRIPTION

lpr submits files for printing. Files named on the command line are sent to the named printer (or the system default destination if no des- tination is specified). If no files are listed on the command-line, lpr reads the print file from the standard input.

OPTIONS

The following options are recognized by lpr: -E Forces encryption when connecting to the server. -H server[:port] Specifies an alternate server. -C "name" -J "name" -T "name" Sets the job name. -P destination[/instance] Prints files to the named printer. -U username Specifies an alternate username. -# copies Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100. -h Disables banner printing. This option is equivalent to "-o job- sheets=none". -l Specifies that the print file is already formatted for the desti- nation and should be sent without filtering. This option is equiv- alent to "-o raw". -m Send an email on job completion. -o option[=value] Sets a job option. -p Specifies that the print file should be formatted with a shaded header with the date, time, job name, and page number. This option is equivalent to "-o prettyprint" and is only useful when printing text files. -q Hold job for printing. -r Specifies that the named print files should be deleted after printing them.

COMPATIBILITY

The "c", "d", "f", "g", "i", "n", "t", "v", and "w" options are not supported by CUPS and produce a warning message if used.
